Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown - black beer. Short lived tan head. Palate is soft and viscous. Semi dry with fine carbonation. Rich dark chocolate and malt. Trace of coffee. Smooth bourbon. Light vanilla oak. Bourbon spice and mellow dark fruits. Smooth finish. Nice but could possibly do with a little morr time.
Keg at Kickbacks, RBWG. Pours dark, red-brown with a small, creamy tan head. Lovely aroma, lots of sugary dark fruits, brown sugar, hints of chocolate. Big sweet flavor with rich, ripe dark fruits, raisins, brown sugar, rich bread. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish, a touch chewy, hints of burnt wood, dark cherries, raisins, mellowed alcohol. Delicious stuff, rich, smooth, incredibly balanced. Wonderful.

Bottle. Pours dark brown tan head. Nose and taste of bourbon, chocolate, alcohol soaked licorice and oak - full body. brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 2, 2012
Thanks, Derek. Almost black in color with a khaki head. Huge vanilla aroma. Lots of bourbon, oak, and roasted malt, too. Plenty of dark chocolate, licorice, and dark fruits. Sweet bourbon, vanilla, and dark fruit flavors. Heavy on the licorice, roasted malt, caramel, and molasses. A bit of alcohol, some dark chocolate, and maybe just a hint of maple syrup.

Bottle - Nice barrel notes, coconut and chocolate notes. Jet brown with a decent beige head. Chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and a long cocoa finish. Rich and very nice. Scopey (14778) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle thanks to Ken at Jack’s farewell bash. It pours darkest opaque brown with no head... The nose is wood, caramel, vanilla, coconut, tablet, fudge, bourbon and earth. The taste is wood, earth, vanilla, cocoa, oily, coconut, fudge, decent bitterness, mild acidity, plum, date, alcohol warmth and bourbon. Full body, moderate carbonation and viscous mouth-feel. Flavoursome and well-balanced. Good stuff. djd07 (14774) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2014
